Sindh, Gih – Gulshan-e-Iqbal, Block The metaphor of the vulture as an animal feeding mostly on the carcasses of dead animals is employed to portray the trespassing of ethical limits imposed by the society or by the religion. Each part has a title describing the reason: Dec 27, Hamid Raza rated it it was ok. I strongly recommend this novel to all and lot of thanks to Bano Qudsia for such a great contribution to Urdu literature.

In my case there was considerable turmoil, excitement, desire and a strong longing for the unknown. Qudsia also wrote for television and stage in both Urdu and Punjabi languages.

It was a very Inspirational psycological and philosophical novel. It follows Qayyum, a middle-class man hailing from a rural background, who falls deeply and irrevocably in love with his university friend Seemi who is already in love with someone else. This page was last edited on 23 Juneat Almost every novel follows a religious theme with a super pious girl who knows nothing about the world. A book that holds meaning, a lot of meaning. We have done something seriously wrong with our literature.

Personal search has always been the area of interest in East. So in a state of such paucity, this particular book is a priceless piece of literature. Sorry for a super long review, but I really want everyone to read it and see how beautiful was our literature, before we destroyed it by our religious extremism and so called social and cultural values.

But I don’t rajq to spoil it for anybody. May 26, Namoos Qasmi rated it did not like it Recommends it for: Retrieved from ” https: But this story is not just about a love triangle, it has much more in it. But I couldn’t relate myself to it at allso I guess it wasn’t meant for me.

I was horribly mistaken. Recommended to Saqib by: Like she kept describing qqudsia beauty of Seemin but when it came to her religious class fellows she talked about them as some forbidden species.

Raja Gidh – Wikipedia

Every single line of her can be quoted. Questions about this product. This would be wrong and unjust, Islamically, socially and even ethically. Our protagonist, Qayyum, is metaphorically the Prince of the Vultures for he too has fed on the dead soul of a woman who had lost her everything when the man she loved left her. This article needs additional citations for verification. Qayyum was pathetic, the picture drawn of the lives of middle class individuals was realistic, the dialogue and narrative was bold.

Raja Gidh by Bano Qudsia

Thus, through the interaction of its characters, the main plot charts baano various reasons of human madness: It shows the ugly vulturous nature of humans, we all are vultures here, feeding at our forbidden desires. Banu Qudsia experiments with possibilities and impossibilities but she is not presumptuous.


I can’t just read from page 1 to the last page, as I do with fiction books. Gidh is the Urdu word for a vulture and Raja is a Hindi synonym for king. Now the long story of separation begins.

Review of “Raja Gidh” by Bano Qudsia It is very difficult to not like something that’s written by a legend. The way she writes about the love triangle of Semi, Qayyum and Aftab is exceptionally good.

Naturally the plot is woven to support the thesis. It is completely ridiculous, but he is a true stereotype. Now every novel has a same story line of a spoiled rich boy falling in love with a religious girl and himself turning into a “molvi” as a result. I wish i could give more stars to this book!

In order to convince the reader on this point, characters of Qayyum and Semi Shah are introduced in novel. As far as I thinkthis all started from that first introd Original rating: The most boring description of events, cliched characters students of philosophy department in Punjab University dull dialogues, it seemed like a revenge from the reader.
